THE HOUSE-SIZED BOAT BUILT FOR SPEED

Finally, someone made a superyacht you could race with. The custom AB Spectre yacht is a 100-foot floating house with three Man V12-1900 diesel engines and three Marine Jet waterjets for added maneuverability. This allows the luxury vessel to reach a top speed of 54 knots, which is the equivalent of 62 mph on land. While the top speed definitely raises some questions concerning the ship's stability, AB Yachts assures it runs at top speed with “no vibrations and in total stability and maximum comfort of navigation.” It should also be noted that this particular boat isn't available for purchase, but one contact AB Yachts to order their own custom boat with similar configurations.
